drop off!

Brian Kiernan just dropped off his paintings for the upcoming show, 'Shifting Nature'. With the help of his partner, painter Jennifer O'Connell, the canvases kept on coming...and coming...and coming thru the door! I admit to being a bit overwhelmed by the quantity of work, however, between the three of us, we managed to successfully edit.

Jen also dropped off some new paintings that will be on display in the gallery. Jen paints representational interiors. As explained in her artist statement, "Literally and symbolically, interior spaces are self-controlled and apart from the world. Rooms are states of being; manifestations of the mind; protected and shielded. The interior is a metaphor for the self." Jen's paintings are beautiful, like Brian, her palette has evolved. Shown here is 'Aging Interior' (oil on canvas, 40x30).
